3C Electronic Products, also known as 3C products, 3C stands for “Computer, Communication and Consumer Electronics. These Products have become an essential part of our lives today due to their convenience and affordability. They provide us with a way to stay connected while still being able to enjoy entertainment on our terms.
As we know, the world of 3C electronic products is a rapidly changing one. With new technologies and products being released every day, Emerging 3C industry electronics product is mainly divided into intelligent wearable devices, AR/VR, UAV, and so on...

Especially, wearable devices have become increasingly popular in recent years for a variety of applications at home and at work, from fitness trackers to smartwatches, these devices are designed to make our lives easier and more efficient. Although these wearable devices offer a lot of convenience and benefits, they can also cause a lot of pain. The material used to make wearable devices can be uncomfortable and cause skin irritation or even rashes.

How to make wearable devices so safe, reliable, and functional? The answer lies in the materials used to create them.

Materials play a critical role in the design and functionality of wearable devices. These materials must be able to withstand extreme temperatures, humidity, and other environmental conditions while still providing function properly or reliably over time.  they must also be safe, lightweight, flexible, and durable enough to withstand everyday wear and tear.

The most common material used for wearable devices is plastic. Plastic is lightweight and durable, making it an ideal choice for wearables. However, it can also be abrasive against the skin and cause irritation or rashes. This is especially true if the device is worn for long periods of time or if it’s not cleaned regularly.

Another material used in wearable devices is metal. Metal is often used for components such as sensors or buttons, but it can also be used for the entire device itself. While metal may look sleek and stylish, it can also be cold against the skin and cause discomfort when worn for long periods of time. It can also cause skin irritation if not cleaned regularly.

And, there are some wearable devices are made from fabric or leather materials. These materials are often more comfortable than plastic or metal but they can still cause skin irritation if not cleaned regularly or if worn for long periods of time without being washed or replaced. Additionally, fabric materials may not be as durable as plastic or metal so they may need to be replaced more often than other materials.

    3. Optimize processing to meet the demand for personalization In the pursuit of personalization, the phone case from the shape, color single become colorful. Silicone phone case in the processing process can not do shape changeable, and some can only complete a single color co-extrusion or injection molding, and can not meet the personalized market demand. Si-TPV can be co-extruded with many thermoplastic engineering plastics such as PC, ABS, PVC, etc., or two-color injection molding, the product shape is rich, it is a good choice for personalized cell phone case materials. In addition, Si-TPV has excellent performance in logo printing, effectively solving the problem of easy to fall off the logo of cell phone cases. 4. Low carbon and environmental protection, excellent mechanical properties Si-TPV material does not add any harmful solvents and plasticizers in the production, odorless, non-volatile after molding, compared with the traditional phone case, carbon emissions have dropped significantly, with low carbon emissions, low VOC, recyclable secondary use and excellent mechanical properties, etc., to ensure that the mechanical properties of the mechanical properties at the same time to meet the needs of green environmental protection. In addition, due to the low density of the material itself, and therefore good performance in heat dissipation, can be very good to avoid damage caused by overheating of the phone, to extend the service life of the phone.

Bond Requirements

SILIKE Si-TPVs Overmolding can adhere to other materials through injection molding. suitable for insert molding and or multiple material molding. Multiple material molding is otherwise known as Multi-shot injection molding, Two-Shot Molding, or 2K molding.

SI-TPVs have excellent adhesion to a variety of thermoplastics, from polypropylene and polyethylene to all kinds of engineering plastics.

When selecting an Si-TPV for an over-molding application, the substrate type should be considered. Not all Si-TPVs will bond to all types of  substrates.
